Middle School

Beyond the Classroom

HP Middle School builds on basic skills in language arts, mathematics, social studies and science and is designed to thoroughly prepare students for our high school’s college preparatory curriculum. Algebra I, Foreign Language A and B, and Health are given high school credit, but no high school grade points are assigned. Pre-college-level courses (Pre AP) are offered in math and English in 7th grade and are expanded to include history and science as well in 8th grade.
